It would have been nice to see the process of peeling and slicing that root up. I am curious as to how difficult or easy that part of it might be!

These Celery French Fries look delicious ! Cutting the celery root into these regular shapes might be a mighty big task. Is it soft enough to cut with a knife? Like potato fries these fries are not deep fried in oil. Why do you call them fries ...when they are bakes ? No offense :):)
